Node.js is a leading-edge, event-driven asynchronous I/O platform built for Internet sites which support interactive communication. Some examples of such sites are web-based browser game portals, live chat rooms or hotel reservation portals. Node.js processes the info transmitted between the website and its users in little bits, which enhances the loading speed and the overall performance of the site substantially. When a certain form with three boxes should be filled out by a particular user, for instance, ordinarily all three boxes should be filled and their entire content is then forwarded as one large hunk of information to the server. With Node.js, the first box’s content is processed as soon as it is entered, before the user types anything in the second box. In this way, a lot more information can be handled much faster and more efficiently compared to any conventional system, which can exert a significant effect on the website’s overall performance. Node.js is already being used by many of the top IT companies such as Microsoft and Yahoo.
Node.js in Shared Web Hosting
You will be able to make use of Node.js with each and every shared web hosting package that we’re offering, since the platform is available on our cloud hosting servers and can be added to an active hosting account with a few clicks. Once you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will see Node.js under the Upgrades menu where you can select how many instances you want to run. One instance means that one app will use Node.js and you will be able to add as many instances to your website hosting account as you like. A new menu will appear in the Control Panel soon afterwards and to start using Node.js, you’ll have to indicate the path to the .js file that will use the platform and to decide whether the connection will pass through the physical server’s shared IP address or via a dedicated IP. The controls inside the Hepsia Control Panel will also allow you to restart or to terminate an instance and to see the output of any given application.
